Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr., still recovering from COVID-19, on Thursday said he was hurt by some ill-wishers who wanted him dead.
"Minsan po nakakalungkot. 'Yung ibang tao imbes na i-wish ka na gumaling ka, may nagwi-wish pa na mamatay ka na. Nakakalungkot. Pero ganunpaman, sa akin, pinapatawad ko sila 'di nila alam ang ginagawa nila," Revilla said in a 14-minute Facebook Live video.
"Mahal ko pa rin kayo kahit winish ninyo ako ng ganun dahil alam ko naman mas maraming tao ang nagdadasal para sa aking mabilis na paggaling,'' he added.
Revilla, however, did not specifically mention the people whom he was referring to.
He said his battle with COVID-19 is not easy as his family is still grieving the loss of their patriarch Ramon Revilla Sr. who died due to heart failure.
The younger Revilla was discharged from the hospital earlier this week. He developed pneumonia after being diagnosed with COVID-19.
He said he will be on his 21st day of isolation on Friday.
Though no longer required under the new Department of Health guidelines, Revilla said he would undergo another swab test "just to make sure" that he is already negative for COVID-19.
He advised the public to isolate themselves once symptoms of COVID-19 start to manifest.
"Kung mahal ninyo po ang pamilya ninyo, kung pupuwede ay humanap na po kayo agad ng lugar na puwede ninyong puntahan na mai-isolate ang sarili ninyo," he said. — RSJ, GMA News
